England on Sunday named a 14-man squad for the three-match One-Day International series against India in Pune, starting from March 23.

After losing the five-match T20I series by 3-2, England on Sunday named a 14-man squad for the three-match One-Day International series against India in Pune.

Three additional players – Jake Ball, Chris Jordan and Dawid Malan – will travel with the team as cover. All these players were a part of the T20I squad in Ahmedabad.

Meanwhile, Jofra Archer will return to the UK for further management and investigation of his right elbow injury. As a result, Archer will miss the start of the Indian Premier League, scheduled to kick off on April 9.

“Archer’s elbow issue has deteriorated over the course of the Twenty20 International series and made it increasingly challenging for him to maintain performance levels.

“He has been deemed unfit for selection for the ODI series that features matches on 23, 26 and 28 March,” the England and Wales Cricket Board said in an official statement.
 
“The ECB medical team will assess the player and, together with Jofra, develop a treatment plan and a return-to-play schedule in due course. As a consequence, Jofra will miss the start of this year’s Indian Premier League,” it added.

England Men’s ODI Squad:

Eoin Morgan (Middlesex) (captain), Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Jonathan Bairstow (Yorkshire), Sam Billings (Kent), Jos Buttler (Lancashire), Sam Curran (Surrey), Tom Curran (Surrey), Liam Livingstone (Lancashire), Matt Parkinson (Lancashire), Adil Rashid (Yorkshire), Jason Roy (Surrey), Ben Stokes (Durham), Reece Topley (Surrey), & Mark Wood (Durham).

Reserves:

Jake Ball (Nottinghamshire), Chris Jordan (Sussex), Dawid Malan (Yorkshire).
